In the CoA? Mask Up! Motherfu **record scratch**
Sorry, I got carried away.
As of last night the City has mandated wearing masks inside public places, and is discouraging group meetups of more than ten. Fortunately this will not impact Saturday morning’s bike ride, which won’t be in city limits anyway.
Yesterday was yet another fairly mundane day. I did some more work in the back yard, some parts of which are improving, and one I will mention in a bit will have to remain as is for the time being. Even though my AppleWatch doesn’t deem my manual labor as “real exercise”, I do, so I didn’t get on the trainer, or walk, or whatever last night.
While I was working in the den watching nature do the crazy and sometimes worrying shit that it does, I noticed my overgrown Japanese maple tree branches shaking a lot. Turns out, it was a squirrel jumping into it and, sometimes miraculously by hanging by its hind claws, chewing off small branches and leaves to build a nest (or “drey” if you are into crossword puzzles). By the quickness of its return trips I knew the drey wasn’t very far from the source of its construction materials. This morning I noticed that this new drey was constructed in Phase 2 of my backyard renovations. I’m not really happy about this new addition to my back yard, but I guess I won’t be a complete dick and take down that tree for a little while.
Last night I did a virtual Top Chef texting session with Betsy. Last week in “upgraded” my Disney+ subscription, which includes Hulu and ESPN+, so I was watching Top Chef on Hulu to experience the ads Betsy does. Hulu’s ads are frequent and long; they are insufferable! It’s like watching TV in the olden days. 😒 I know that I can pay more money to not have ads served to me, but I choose not to at the moment.
This morning I thought I would be one of the first customers inside Lowe’s, but then I talked myself out of making that journey today, and did a load of laundry instead. I have to return to German class tonight, now on Thursdays, so I’ll have to find a time to make it to the store sometime in the near future.
Hope you are staying healthy.
